The Year Of Technological Transformation In Canada

By CIOReview | Tuesday, April 26, 2022

Businesses of all sizes must adapt to the global technology landscape's new changes.

FREMONT, CA: Another year of the pandemic has passed. People look forward to another year of healing and hope. Numerous technological advances accelerated in Canada in reaction to the world of "living with Covid" in 2021. Businesses placed a more significant premium on operational agility than ever before in 2021. Numerous individuals and companies in Canada have adapted throughout time, and those that have remained unaffected by the year's obstacles have become stronger, primarily due to cutting-edge technology developments. This process has been expedited by Covid's market disruption and the increasing use of hybrid operating models. As businesses, employees, and entrepreneurs migrate to the Internet, this shift has resulted in an unprecedented demand for constantly evolving technology solutions.

Canadians can no longer disregard these technological advancements as part of the business's digital marketing plan. Not only can they generate thousands of digital leads and revenue, but they are also quantifiable, providing them with a great perspective into their consumer base. Consider some significant trends that will reshape the Canadian business world in 2022:

Generative Artificial Intelligence (AI): Generative AI is one of the most advanced forms of AI currently available. It is a collection of machine learning techniques that use data to infer information about content or objects and then use that information to create entirely new, more realistic products.

According to the report, generated AI will account for nearly 10 percent of all data generated, up from less than 1 percent today. This game-changing technology can be used for various purposes, including drug development acceleration, coding, and targeted marketing. Nonetheless, industry analysts have warned that it can be used to perpetrate fraud, spread political disinformation, and create fictitious personal data.

Digital Finance: Cryptocurrencies and central bank-backed digital currencies (CBDCs) will streamline cross-border payments and expand financial inclusion. Central banks worldwide are increasingly evaluating the potential of digital currencies in light of growing interest in online payment channels and cryptocurrencies.

The number of countries developing CBDCs has increased significantly after the coronavirus pandemic, as consumers increasingly use digital payments.

Internet of Behaviors (IoB): As the world's digitalization accelerates, businesses continue to rely on information and data as critical components of their success. IoB is a crucial aspect of consumer data. This enables companies to gain valuable insight into consumer behavior. Businesses can leverage the power of IoB through analysis and data collection to improve customer interactions, learn about customer preferences, and make purchasing decisions to remain competitive and overcome challenges.

In some ways, IoT is connected to the Internet of Things because it provides additional insight into how consumers engage in the purchasing process. Additionally, it encompasses post-collection analysis of data from a psychological standpoint, such as Big Data, CDP, or BI, and the IoT and various Internet sources. In general, this new technology aims to assist businesses in meaningfully improving user engagement and the customer experience.
